Plagued by injuries and down to 16 healthy bodies, Canterbury dropped its second straight, losing to Victory Christian 48-12 on the road.

Canterbury fell behind 34-0 before running back James Goodwin put the Crusaders (1-2) on the board right before halftime with a touchdown to make it 34-6 at the break.

Goodwin had another score in the second half and finished with 180 yards on the ground.

“Tonight, (Victory Christian) was just better,” Canterbury coach Steve Dudley said. “We made a lot of mistakes. I think a lot of those mistakes come with fatigue. Kids get beat up and tired and start getting sloppy. They’re on the field a long time, and it just starts compounding.”

Brent O’Neal added 50 yards rushing and was Canterbury’s leading tackler on defense, registering 10 stops.

Freshman defensive tackler Keith Parrish, who slid over to middle linebacker in the third quarter after yet another injury, added six tackles for Canterbury.

“I’m optimistic,” Dudley said. “We still have a chance to have a great season, just have to get a couple kids healthy.”
